A Month in the Burial Ground – May 2022

The burial ground has been quite spectacular during the past month with new flowers appearing every few days. The daffodils and tulips have been replaced by majestic alliums and irises; interspersed with cow parsley and bright orange gems. Foxgloves have also self-seeded and provide height to the borders. The roses are beginning to flower and on the chapel cottage wall, the Gloire de Dijon rose looks beautiful with its apricot blooms against the mellow Bath stone.

In addition the wildflower area is becoming more diverse as each year passes. We were pleased to see the yellow rattle growing well as this will help to control the grasses and encourage more flowers to grow.

In the past week Laurence has erected an arch and seating area in the centre of the left hand border. This will provide a space where friends can sit and look out across to Prior Park.

We are looking forward to meeting for worship and picnic at the burial ground on Sunday 19th June, and sharing time together as a community.
